Population Council presents new research at the International Conference on Family Planning
Date:11/15/2013

men to take active part in family planning. Recommended methods for achieving this goal include engaging men through group discussions; helping sensitize men by educating and encouraging them to be supportive of their partners' contraception needs; using social media to reach men at the workplace and at home; and increasing visibility of male role models to counter the perception that family planning is a female responsibility.

  • Researchers concluded that men who understand the need for contraceptive use are more likely to support their partners by helping them to monitor their use of contraceptives and/or help pay for the cost.

    "This study showed us that when men are engaged using methods such as joint counseling and interactions with male associations, uptake and support of family planning services increases," said Nsorma Gertrude Nyaaba, Program Officer for Research, Population Council. "Understanding the factors that help influence men's positive involvement will help us influence policies and programs that break down barriers and encourage greater adoption of voluntary family planning services."
